Clearly, Nigeria is not lacking in literary talent, yet books written by national authors and published by Nigerian publishing houses are shockingly scarce. The authors are far more likely to be picked up by Western publishing houses before they have a chance to become successful back home. Such was the story with globally acclaimed authors such as Chinua Achebe, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Wole…

    I am proud to present another post by my husband, I hope you enjoy. I remember watching Dale Hansen on the news everyday when I was young. He hit the nail on the head when he said there is no logic behind the reasoning that his father thought that one family was good and an exception, but all others were bad completely based on the color of their skin. Also, Dale only ever knew to call them what he was TAUGHT, a derogatory name instead of their given ones. What kind of society neglects to respect a person enough to at least say their name. Children, and everyone else for that matter, do not…

For example, French is the donor language of “Je ne sais quoi” (“An intangible quality that makes something distinctive or attractive,”) a non-English expression one may use to describe the ineffable beauty of work of art.

    Angie Beeman
    14 Mar 2015 | 6:17 pm
    TweetColor-blind ideology, which developed as part of the backlash to the 1960s Civil Rights Movement promoted the idea that skin color should not matter. In contemporary society, this often translates into the belief that racism no longer matters and that those who continually point racism out are trouble-makers “playing the race card.” In this context, even those organizations that repudiate racism are pressured to use racism-evasive strategies. Ironically, M. Hughey finds that white nationalist organizations are also using this post-racial rhetoric to their advantage by arguing…

    Steven WhitehurstPeople at times get Lincoln fever. With movies and the prevailing thought that he was a warrior against slavery distorting the truth. Abraham Lincoln did free the slaves; but not because he felt Blacks should be free. He freed slaves as a strategic move to weaken the South. Proof of this is in the fact that the slaves in Southern areas that remained loyal to the Union remained slaves even after emancipation. Lincoln said that he would keep slavery if it would preserve the Union; and that he would end slavery if it would preserve the Union. Abraham Lincoln was a champion of…
